Mark Halperin: ‘If Hillary Clinton doesn’t run … I bet you John Kerry does’

The recent Politico Magazine piece, “Was Hillary Clinton a Good Secretary of State?,” has advanced the emerging notion that her successor might be overshadowing Clinton’s tenure.

Over at Andrea Mitchell’s MSNBC show a few minutes ago, Mark Halperin noted this: “If Hillary Clinton doesn’t run for president, I bet you John Kerry does.”
